When modules are removed from the configuration, the modules still show in the "help" screens of bindctl.

Only after bindctl is closed and restarted again the module list is gone.

bindctl should update its internal list of modules on "config remove"

It is irritating to see modules that cannot be used in the list of available configurations.
